Background/History: Genetic Experiment 626 is the creation of that Evil Genius Dr. Jumba Jookiba. Why he built 626 is unknown, although as an Evil Genius, it's not like he really needs a reason, right? Anyway, as Jumba's experiments were against the laws of the United Galactic Federation, He ended up in prison, while Experiment 626 was sent off to exile on a distant asteroid. Unfortunately for the Federation, Experiment 626 escaped en route.

Stealing a hyped-up police cruiser (the "red" one), 626 hit the hyperdrive and took off, scarcely bothered that his ship was damaged and he'd not set a destination into the autopilot. So, as luck would have it, he (crash) landed on Earth—specifically the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Leaving the wreckage of his spaceship, 626 is promptly run over by several tractor trailers, at which point he is dropped off at the local animal shelter. There, he is adopted by a little five-year-old girl named Lilo, who wants a dog to be her friend and guardian. Although her older sister and the shelter's operator are less than thrilled about little Lilo adopting a "dog" that was basically dead that morning, they don't stand in her way. Of course, they'd been even less thrilled to learn that Jumba (accompanied by Earth "expert" Agent Pleakley) have arrived intent on capturing Experiment 626 and returning him to the aforementioned asteroid. And so the fun begins....

Personality/Motivation: As created by Jumba, Experiment 626 has only one real mission: "to destroy everything he touches!" And for a while, that's all he does. However, life with Lilo has an interesting affect on 626. She gives him a name ("Stitch") and a sense of family—or more accurately, a sense of loss for not having a family. This causes his destructive programming (defined as being irresistibly drawn to large cities, backing up sewers, reversing street signs, and stealing everyone's left shoe) to breakdown, so that he stops destroying and even voluntarily goes near water (which he normally hates). Eventually, Stitch adopts Lilo and her older sister Nani as his family, becoming their caretaker (in a sense).

For those who wish to simulate a "pre-Lilo" version of Stitch, just add in the two optional Psychological Limitations, remove his DNPC and current "protective of family" Psych Lim, and you're all set.

Quote: "Meega na la Kweesta!"
"This is my family. I found it all on my own. It's little and broken, but still good. Yeah... still good."

Powers/Tactics: While explaining his creation to the Galactic Council early on in the movie, Dr. Jumba gives the following rundown of Stitch's powers: "he is bulletproof, fireproof, and can think faster than super computer. He can see in the dark and can move objects 3,000 times his own size."

Although we never see Stitch shot at with a bullet, he does survive the crash of his space ship with nary a scratch, is only briefly stunned by a fall of several thousand feet, and has to be run over by three tractor-trailers in succession to be knocked out. As for fireproof—well, he does drive a tanker truck of gasoline into a volcano and ends up only a little singed. Thinking faster than a super computer is harder to quantify, but he does figure out how to escape from captivity fairly interestingly, builds a model of San Francisco after only glancing at a postcard, learns to play guitar in just a few minutes, builds a bomb out of a doll and a roller-skate, and generally picks up quick on what is happening around him. I can only guess about seeing in the dark, as it never really comes up as a power. However, his ability to lift objects 3,000 times his own size (meaning if he weighs 50 kgs, he can lift 150,000 kgs!) is demonstrated amply when he picks up the descending blast door, smashes Dr. Jumba with a Volkswagen Beetle ("Blue punch buggy! No punch back!"), and stops an 18-wheeled tanker of gasoline dead in its tracks.

Although Stitch has an amazing 63 STR, he can't really use it as effectively as other bricks. His size (about 3' tall—if that) makes it difficult for him to punch and leap with the same power as a taller person would. So his two Physical Limitations are meant to limit his physical abilities. He can lift, grab, and hurl objects with his full 63 STR, but can't really punch at all, can only leap a fraction of what he should, and has trouble with anything requiring leverage (such as many entangles). Exactly how much STR he can really use in these situations is up to you, but I'd say only half (i.e. 30) sounds about right.

Appearance: Normally, Stitch is a short (2'-3' tall) blue bear-like creature with six limbs. He can change shape into a four-limbed ... uhm... bear/dog form as well.

Designer's Notes: Lilo and Stitch has to be one of the funniest, if not the funniest, Disney films ever made. It certainly is the most whacked animated film they've ever done (Although, The Emperor's New Groove comes close on both accounts). You pretty much know what kind of film it will be when Lilo gives her reason for feeding Pudge the fish a sandwich: "Pudge controls the weather." And it just gets stranger from there...

Building Stitch was fairly easy, as Jumba rattles off everything he can do about 5 minutes into the film. Of course, you can tinker with Stitch's abilities, adding such things as his four blaster pistols (lost when he was hit by a truck), or upping his Missile Deflection to include any attacks. Dump his silly skills (like most of his PS's), make him around 6' tall, and you have a frightening alien brick (a new gladiator from Malva perhaps?)

Oh, and McCoy from the HERO Message Boards writes:
Don't remember if it was Gantu or Hämsterviel that pointed out that [...] Stitch can lift 3000 times his weight, "and not one ounce more." [Stitch] [h]as absolutely no ability to Push STR.

Apparently, this Physical Limiation is revealed in the animated series
